But it's not necessarily the recordist's fault -- maybe just takes a while for the P.A. sound to come into focus?
Interesting guitar melody twist near end of Greatest.
Dire Wolf sound is still a little thin, but you hear the front of hall mix juicing up.
Jerry starts cutting loose in a lively Cassidy, but the sound still comes out a little out of phase, or something, i can't describe it.
During Candyman some over-enthusiastic audience member starts singing out of key and then Bobby's slide is louder than Jerry's vocal. These are minor distractions. It's obvious that this recording is from down in the belly of the beast. Jerry pulls off some fancy needlepoint on his tiger before slipping into the final verse. This song shows promise but falls out.
Bobby's vocals on El Paso sound swallowed, but both guitars come thru strongly. Then Bobby's vocals end abruptly and drop out for two measures.
They try really hard to convince us that they are going to break out any minute when they do a passably exciting version of Minglewood, but it relaxes its verve and quickly ends the first set.
Sound problems seem to dot the start of set 2 which sounds weak, passive and out of phase. I don't know maybe the taper is having problems. There are moments of good ol grateful dead in Alabama but it comes off as passe' and contrived.
Promised Land. I don't know. Maybe it's the recording, maybe it's the P.A., maybe it's the band, but probably, it's me. I just can't get with it tonight.

The space and Other One had good licks with lots of energy.

Just my humble opinion.
